Rahm cruises to emphatic Hero World Challenge success

He said - "don't even worry, you played great, and I started crying in front of Tiger and kind of - it was such an emotional moment".

Tiger Woods avoided a penalty on the 18th hole during the second round at the Hero World Challenge as Jon Rahm produced a brilliant performance to move into a tie for the lead with Henrik Stenson.

Rahm ends his year with three victories, just like in 2017, his first full year as a pro. "I've been out here for 20-some odd years". Finau was his final challenger until he took double bogey on the par-4 14th hole as Rahm made birdie for a five-shot lead, and the rest was easy.

"I'll try and make it to the finish line", Stenson said. "Hats off to Jon this week. He played incredible golf, and he deserved to win this week".

After his victory, Woods presented Rahm the trophy and apparently made a quip about his asking for advice. Woods got off to another rough start, rallied on the back nine and had to settle for a 1-over 73 to finish 17th against the 18-man field.

Finau was left second for the fourth time this year, knocking yet again on the door, which does not seem to be opening but will surely yield soon after an unbelievable year for the American, who is part-Tongan and part-Samoan by origin.

"I added two degrees of loft in my putter after Thursday and then went out and shot 64 yesterday with it and so I chose to keep it", he said. Keep doing birdies and just keep going on. After winning the Challenge, Rahm admitted that he grew up watching and learning from Tiger Woods.

Recalling the whole incident and the match, Rahm said, "Then on the last putt right before I hit it, somebody in Spanish yelled, "Do it for Seve", at the top of his lungs".

As for Fowler, he had a 67 to pull within three shots.

"Last year I think I had 14 top 10s last year, maybe more". He made birdie on all of them Sunday.

That looked likely to happen heading into the final hole, when Finau sunk a 10-foot birdie to take clear second and knock Rose into third place. "I think whoever plays the par 5s...with the better score's going to have a chance". Rose has one more event left in two weeks at the Indonesia Masters. Finau had seven birdies, as well, but was all over the place at the Albany course. He finished the week in solo 17th at 1 under, one shot ahead of Hideki Matsuyama.
